  1. Hey Ed. Thanks for the feedback. On page 1, not looking for visual interest on the tilt. That’s just how it happened to be shot in a crowded room. But you’re right, I wanted more than a mundane shot. We had an odd number of mugs with Surujnauth and I didn’t know where else to put him. I respectfully disagree that it suggests special treatment; they were all the same size. If anything, I wish I added a mug to the bottom story of the coach – too much gray in legs 1-3.

    On page 2, great idea on a drop shadow. That never occurred to me.

    On page 3, the tennis racket art was from adbuilder, which we subscribe to. That’s why you see a shot put and soccer ball – to not leave any sport out. The two bits of white space seemed ideal. Good point on the black bar; sometimes you don’t notice those things till someone points it out. Thanks!

    Michael, great stuff, as usual. I don’t really have a problem with any of the top two pages, but I did have an idea on how you could have solved the trapped white space in the third design. Take the entire left package and move it right. That way there won’t be any trapped white space.
